If it sounds like something you would be interested in buying, you may want to buy one for your next contract plan.

Small & Powerful

One thing customers will love about the new HTC 8XT is that it combines all of this technological power into a small package. Just when you think that phones can’t get any smaller, this device will surprise you. It is comfortable to use and can be easily stored in your pocket. Many people will be blown away by how many new specifications it can offer, despite being slightly smaller than most other models out there. It was launched with a 4.3″ screen, making it one of the smaller smart phones that you can find on the general market.

HTC 8XT packs a big punch in a little package for a phone

Another unique aspect of this phone is that it will launch using Windows Phone 8. This is the new mobile operating system launched by Microsoft. It has not been incorporated into too many different phone designs, so it is nice to see that the HTC 8XT was chosen for this role.

It will be a great chance for users to test out the Windows Phone 8 system and see if it meets their needs. More than anything else, this may be a challenge for the Windows mobile phone OS to live up to expectations.

How’s the Speed?

The hardware specifications within the new HTC 8XT will be serviceable for most mobile phone users. It has a 1.4Ghz dual core processor, allowing it to handle large loads of data without struggling or slowing down. This is fairly impressive for a small unit, since this is approaching the processor speed of many new laptops and tablets for sale.

The HTC 8XT also has 1GB RAM, so it will run a good amount of applications simultaneously for users who want to multitask.

Crystal Clear Camera

This new model has some other impressive features as well. Its rear camera has 8 megapixels with which it can snap clear, vivid images. This is a good use of picture taking technology for a mobile unit as small as this one is. The sound system is also quite impressive, delivering clear quality while you talk to others through it.

All of this is provided in a mobile phone that only weighs 4.9 ounces. This may set the standard for many other smart phone manufacturers who want to product small phones.

In all, this is a solid entry in the long line of great HTC phones. The technical specifications won’t blow you away, but you will be impressed by the size. Give it a look the next time you are at the phone shop.
